Re: Sources for NYC obits #general

Barbara L. Sieving <Sieving@...>
 

I have had many family members who were not "famous". I have
found an obit for almost every family member whom lived in NYC in
the NY Times. Once I have figured out the day they died I check
the NY Times obits 3 days following their death. Nine times out
of ten I find them. Most of the time the obit tells me very
little that I did not already know. I have made copies of them
for my records. I had a family member die September 7, 1904 and
I could not find is obit....I was reading the paper for that day
(it was small in those days) and found an article about his
death...he committed suicide in a bar on Columbus Av....a family
secret uncovered. If a family member died of unusual
circumstances...you may even find an article about them.
The following papers were alive and well in NYC during the
indicated dates:
Brooklyn Eagle (1880-1934), New York Hearld Tribune (1850-1950),
NY Sun (1880-1950), NY World (1880-1931), NY Hearld (1880-1923),
NY Tribune (1880-1923)and of course the NY Times. The only paper
that is commonly held in public libraries and universities is the
NY Times. You may be able to get microfilm of these other papers
from a public library in NYC...or inter library loan. I do not
know if any of these papers have their obits indexed.

Hope this info helps someone,

CATCH 22? How would you proceed? #general

Howard M. Relles <rellesh@...>
 

10 Meinhardt females were born in NYC >from 1934 to 1944 (according to
the NYC Index of Births in the New York Public Library). Two of these
would be my second cousins; their father would be Edward Meinhardt; I
don't know their mother's name. Assuming, as is usual, that the
father's name is listed on the Birth Certificates, I should be able to
identify which are my cousins >from these. But according to the person I
spoke to at the Bureau of Records and Statistics of the Dept. of Health
for NYC (125 Worth St., NY, NY 10013; 212-788-4520), I cannot see these
records or even ask them to check for which would have Edward as the
father unless I can first prove that I am related (perhaps even that I
am the parent) to the child. But I can't prove which ones I'm related
to until I find which have Edward for the father. Have I hit a dead
end? Any suggestions?

Re: Kamenets-Podilsky Archive #general

Hi!

My wife's parents came >from the Kamenetz Podolia area, either Krasna or
Vinnitza. Their name was VINNITSKI. Trying to locate info on them has been
difficult because when they came here, some came before WW I and were boarders
so cannot locate them in census. Remainder came after 1920, and do not have
locations for them. Any help would be appreciated since I am new at this work.
Have done better on my fathers side.

TIA,

Mt. Judah Cemetery, Brooklyn, NY #general

Sheldon Clare <clare+@...>
 

Last month, I visited my grandmother Rivka Grozen's grave in the
Oshmaner Brothers' plot in Mt. Judah Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY. I found
the grave, which is supposedly under pertual care, as
well as the rest of the cemetery in deplorable condition. When I
complained to Cypress Hills cemetery, they angrily told me that Mt.
Judah was not part of their system,that it was a "JEWISH CEMETERY" and
that they would NOT give me the appropriate address!!!
To whom do I direct my disappointment about the condition of the
cemetery?
